I shall be grateful for twinging knees and icy sidewalks because they make me walk with my stomach muscles pulled in, my spine straight, and my shoulders back. Truly, half the grinding bone pain comes from posture.

I shall be grateful for this hemi-demi-semi cold and its hoarse voice and productive cough because it allows me to cancel tomorrow's dentist appointment so I needn't be up at 7:30 and piled onto a rush hour train.

And I am grateful as always for my flannel sheets and hot air mister and woolly socks and sleep balaclava and many beanbags- though I wish the beanbags stayed warm the way hot water bottles do. (I wonder why they don't?)

Makes me in turn grateful to my piano teacher who would smack me in the back with a wooden metre rule (if I so much as thought of going into a slouch) and hold it against my back and make me sit and play like so for the whole two hour lesson.

I thought she was an evil thing. Of course today ... I am forever grateful. Ahahaha! I cannot sit, stand or walk any other way.

It's been lovely lately, it rains in the night which starts the day off cool and the breeziness holds for the day. It's as near to 'Christmassy' as we'll ever get. ^_^

Can't believe that people let me go for decades hunched over like an old woman. In all that time I can only remember one person showing me what to do to stand straight. (When you hunch by instinct, the injunction 'stand up straight!' means nothing.)
